Hey everyone!

I'm working on making a globe and I was wondering what is the name of this projection?

It's a different way of doing an interrupted map with the gores joined at a pole rather than along the equator. I don't know which underlying projection is being used though. I'd guess at either Sinusoidal, or maybe Transverse Mercator.

I would say a gnomonic projectio centred on each Pole with a bit of buckminster fuller...
